I was in the beverage isle of the grocery store last week looking to replenish my supply of Mott’s for Tots Juice Boxes. Because if you have to be low, it helps to have some smiley cute fruit friends to get you through. Anyway, as I scanned the shelves for my Strawberry-Banana buddies I overheard a girl nearby utter a magical (also made-up) word to her Mom . . .
I marched over, butted in (I’m so rude) and exclaimed “Did you say Trop-A-Rocka? I’ve been looking for that forever!!” They politely pointed it out on the shelf and promptly ran away from the Crazy Tea Lady.
I was a bit disappointed to see it was only being sold in six-packs. I was hoping I could buy just one bottle and sample it - because frankly, the combo of flavors sounded kind of weird and I wasn’t sure I’d like it. Green and black tea, mango, pear, peach, vanilla, cinnamon - I think those are the flavors in it and I thought it sounded like an odd mixture. But a six-pack was my only choice and I went for it.
You know what? I like it. No, wait, I might even say I love it!! Picky, fussy me. The girl who doesn’t like mangos and isn’t all the crazy about peaches. I was shocked, but something about this odd mix of flavors really worked for me. And if it tastes good now, jut think how refreshing it will be on a hot summer day?
At long last, my mission to sample Trop-A-Rocka has been accomplished. Hey Snapple, just promise me you’ll keep making it, okay??
